World Quests are among the most popular World of Warcraft features and unlocking them in WoW Shadowlands is easy, if you know what you’re doing.

World of Warcraft would be nothing without the limitless potential to play with friends and unknown players alike. The WoW community thrives because of the personal connections players develop when battling through dungeons like Torghast, the Tower of the Damned and leveling up together.

An integral part of this are the World Quests, quests which allow anyone on the map to band together and take on a new adventure together.

This is made even cooler with the fact that Shadowlands requires for you to join a Covenant, so you’ll be able to slay together with players who have a similar approach to the game.
